Ronda Rousey could join the WWE to take part in the first ever all-female Royal Rumble match.
Death, taxes, and rumors being reported then refuted about UFC star Ronda Rousey joining the WWE.
Two weeks ago, sources close to Rousey reported that she was close to joining the WWE, but Triple H quickly shut down those rumors, saying the reports were “news” to him. But according to Ryan Clark of eWrestlingNews.com, there is major speculation about Rousey being part of the very first women’s Royal Rumble, and that “most believe she will win it all.”
Clark also said that there are plans for Rousey and Asuka to face off at WrestleMania 34 for the Raw Women’s Championship, though the latter would have to defeat Alexa Bliss to capture the title. That would apparently scrap any rumored plans to have Rousey face Stephanie McMahon or Charlotte on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Though she hasn’t signed with WWE, it only seems like a matter of time until she leaves the UFC for the squared circle and a Ronda Rousey Royal Rumble appearance seems like the perfect debut. After losing her last two matches and suffering numerous head injuries, president Dana White admitted her career in the octagon is likely “over.”
Rousey has been a life-long WWE fan, idolizing ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper while building close friendships with Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Rousey has teased multiple times about being part of the WWE, though nothing has obviously come to fruition yet.
The women’s division is filled with limitless talent, and Rousey would only add to the star power that already exists on the roster.
Rousey also appeared at WrestleMania 31 to help The Rock confront Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, which led to the UFC icon sending both Authority figures out of the ring with submission maneuvers.
The all-woman Royal Rumble is a stepping stone and historic moment for the WWE, and having a star like Ronda Rousey involved will only make this better. The only way it could really get better? If a big name like Rousey were to join in on the fun – and win it all.
